Hello, good people. My son has been diagnosed astigmatism. I know that he can correct it with lenses or eyeglasses, but I am looking for some more permanent solution. My son’s ophthalmologist recommends lasik. I would like to know something more before I decide about this procedure. Thanks for all your replies.

Hi, there. LASIK surgery stands for Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis. It is one of the refractive surgery methods. A doctor performs this procedure with an instrument called a keratome. He makes a thin circular hinged cut into a cornea. For this purpose, he can use laser instead. He can use special laser called excimer. Excimer doesn’t produce heat. All theses refractive methods change the shape of an eye. You should thoroughly discuss all these issues with the ophthalmologist. I hope I’ve helped a little.
